    I found this out while trying to install the new behaviour packs and all that stuff. This was discovered at 18:06:39 GMT+0300 (GTB Standard Time) (if that is important) so here is a tutorial! If you share this make sure to credit me:

    • Step 1. Take control of the WindowsApps folder in C:/Program Files/ by doing this: Downloading the following registry addition http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3841-take-ownership-add-context-menu-windows-10-a.html and then running the .reg file that came with it, after you have done all of that just right-click on the WindowsApps folder, Take Ownership

    • Step 2. Go to the Microsoft.MinecraftUWP0.1600.5.0_x64_8wekyb3d8bbwe folder and go to the /data/resourcepacks, there you will see the major flaw. They included all the resource pack files with the game. Copy those to a safe location.

    • Step 3. Now navigate to this location using the File Explorer: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MinecraftUWP_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\games\com.mojang (make sure to replace username with your PC name)

    • Step 4. Now navigate to the resource_packs folder and copy all the resourcepacks to the folder. Now launch Minecraft and it should work!
    Troubleshooting

    Q: The Take Ownership Registry addition does not work for me!
    A: Try doing it manually by using the Security tab in the Properties window

    Q: The resource packs aren't working for me!
    A: Edit the metadata and remove all UUIDS and other identification stuff then try again, for best results rename the UUID to the name of the texturepack(Thanks to @LiveLatios)

    I accidentally moved the vanilla texture out of the Minecraft installation and I need permissions to get it back, and without it, the game crashes. What do I do?

    I already have permission, but it says I need permission to copy it back. I can take things out, and not put anything in.

    Yeah do that. Your textures should also be there as I dont think it deletes the files from AppData

    Lol, this... Is dumb. I mean their resources packs aren't really special, and considering the heaping supply of resource packs already available, I'm not even sure why they try to charge for them or skins for that matter. It really seems like it's just for the heck of it. /shrug

    ... welp, that was easy. I agree, it's dumb that they do that stuff. Thankfully, I'm not playing on the W10 edition, playing on the Java version, therefore I don't have to worry about this.

    (Then again, I'd hope that I'm not playing the W10 edition, given that I don't run windows...)
